It ranks countries on a 100-point scale, with 0 being the best score (no hunger) and 100 being the worst, although neither of these extremes is reached in actuality. India’s Position In the 2020 Global Hunger Index, India ranks 94th out of the 107 countries with sufficient data to calculate 2020 GHI scores. With a score of 27.2, India has a level of hunger that is serious. The GHI is based on four indicators Undernourishment: The share of the population that is undernourished (insufficient caloric intake) Child wasting: The share of children under the age of five who are wasted (low weight for their height, reflecting acute under-nutrition) Child stunting: The share of children under the age of five who are stunted (low height for their age, reflecting chronic under-nutrition) Child mortality: The mortality rate of children under the age of five (in part, a reflection of the fatal mix of inadequate nutrition and unhealthy environments). 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
